YMCA Reopens Outdoor Pools

Erie, PA – The YMCA of Greater Erie is reopening YMCA Camp Sherwin and eastside Y outdoor pools on Monday, June 15, 2020 in compliance with Governor Tom Wolf’s Plan for Pennsylvania’s Yellow Phase which remains in effect in Erie County.

Pool facilities will operate under local and state health department and CDC guidelines including recommended capacity guidelines and disinfecting and sanitizing safety breaks. Patrons will be required to have their temperature taken prior to admittance and masks will be required when moving about the facility (not while swimming). Patrons will be asked to make other accommodations including bringing their own chairs as facility chairs will not be available, refraining from gathering in groups, and social distancing (except for family members). Pools are only open to YMCA members and registered campers/guests at YMCA Camp Sherwin and the eastside Y.

A guide to planning a visit to outdoor pools is available here for YMCA Camp Sherwin and here for eastside Y.

The Y expects to reopen additional facilities as the Governor moves through his Plan for Pennsylvania.
